This paper investigates the potential of the Compressed Sensing (CS) paradigm for video streaming in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks. The objective is to study performance limits and outline key design principles that will be the basis for cross-layer protocol stacks for efficient transport of compressive video streams. Hence, this paper investigates the effect of key video parameters (i.e., quantization, CS samples per frame, and channel encoding rate) on the received video quality of CS images transmitted through a wireless channels.
